≪ Design ≫
"Wave Crest Pattern" ("Seigaiha")
A swirl of concentric circles divided in four parts is repeated in this pattern.
A pattern that can be observed around the world, for example in Egypt and in Persia.
This pattern is on the clothes worn under the kimono when performing the act called "Seigaiha" (Blue sea waves) of traditional bugaku dance.
Due to this, the pattern was also called "Seigaiha" (Blue sea waves).
It is an auspicious omen motif that signifies the wish for a long and calm life, just as the constantly repeating gentle waves of the pattern.
≪ Color ≫
Wisteria Violet (Fuji Murasaki)
A bright purple tinged with blue, as seen in wisteria flowers.
This shade is similar to "fuji iro" ("wisteria color"), but is a stronger purple.
The cloth is dyed using a similar method, but the use of more crimson dye gives "fuji murasaki".
Known as "wisteria violet" in English after the color of wisteria blossom.
